Question about storing data outside of datafile

2017-02-16 Thread Mitchell Shiller via 4D_Tech
Kirk, Not sure this will help in your situation but this is what we do. This applies to OSX only. I store all documents (hundreds of thousands) in their native format outside the data file in a directory on the same drive as the 4D datafile. I store the files by client / patient in their own

You can use Miyako’s pdf plugin to do basic pdf manipulation. For instance we receive our faxes as pdf’s from an e-fax service. In our application, we create thumbnails of the various pages. The staff can then chose to delete pages (i.e. the cover page) or group pages together as a single pdf.

Thanks Jim. So based on your post, I tried it with Select Document and as you note it works. Then I changed the path name to use the Folder Separator constant even though “:” (semi-colon) seemed to be working fine and voila, the code works. Don’t know why but it works. Mitch

Thanks for the suggestions: 1) Upgrading to 16.3 HF1. I will do this but none of the reported bug fixes seems to address the problem. 2) This is a 32 bit application 2) Memory setting. Since this is 32 bit on OSX my understanding is that the memory allocation is fixed by the OS at around 2 GB.

I believe I have a clue. The last three crashes occurred overnight when new updates were available to be installed. i.e. I get the notification on the desktop from macOS that an update is ready. The server ran fine for 7 days prior to that. How do I report this to 4D? Thanks Mitch

Thanks. I will have to some of the conversion in v16 and then some in v17. My interface needs some of the newer features e.g. standard actions available in v17. I was hoping to develop and test side by side in the same database. I’ll open two versions. Thanks. > > Maybe 4D Write version 16
